Forum: oldtimeradio Subject: Is "Alien Worlds" really Public Domain?

I'm not trying to start any friction here but I'm just a little concerned that the series isn't Public Domain. If it is then I'm seriously.......... anddddddddddd LITERALLY! Glad that I'm wrong.

Alien Worlds was produced after 1972 when Radio Recordings became subject to copyright. However, up until 1989, they needed to include a copyright notice to be protected. After 1977, they had five years to rectify an error. I listened to one of the recordings and there was no copyright notice either at the beginning or the end. Of course, it could have been cut, and they had 1984 to rectify any missing copyright notice.

Other recent: series that are question:

Aliens is Mind is a BBC-produced series. Under the terms of the Uruguay Agreements as the show was still under copyright in the UK, it was extended copyright protection to the U.S. just as if had been properly made and copyrighted in the U.S., so that would be copyrighted.

Okay, good deal about Alien Worlds.

Yeah, I figured the BBC Aliens of the Mind was copyrighted. I think someone needs to let Jeff Kaplain know about it.

Also Cape Cod Mystery Theater is definitely copywritten. It was made in the 1980s and a Copyrnight Notice follows the episodes.

Yeah, I had my suspicions about cape cod as well. Thanks for checking and I have made a new thread asking for they're removal. Perhaps you could post on that thread letting Jeff Kaplain know for sure that they are copyrighted.
